Your account has been limited until we hear from you (Fake PayPal Email)

This is a good scam email I will say. It does look like it is from PayPal. I wasn't able to post the graphics on here but it looks just like an email PayPal will use. There are 2 things that are wrong with this though. First off the email account that they are addressing me by and sent the message to I no longer use for PayPal. Second when PayPal sends you an email, they will address you by your full name. You will also notice that the links and email associated with this email are not PayPal. Other then that good job to the scammers for at least making this look legit (for the most part). Email was sent from
